Anthony Malvo launched his career in the early 1980s on the legendary Black Star sound system and later recorded hits that included How Glad I Am, Midnight Cowboy and Greatest Girl Lover all with the legendary King Jammys.
During the next decade, he teamed up with Anthony Red Rose to start their own label How You Fi Say Dat and proceeded to churn out hit after hit featuring some of Jamaica's biggest names including Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Cobra, Simpleton and Sean Paul. In the late 1990s, he would produce even more hits by Capleton, Junior Kelly, Admiral Bailey, Glen Washington and Dawn Penn on his own Real Music Production Label.
The veteran entertainer is now all set to release his latest work yet, an album called Stronger that he expects to hit the market by March or April. The album, he says, will have as one of, its main features, a collaborative effort with Sizzla called Cant Draw Me Out that was produced by his label Real Music. The album will also feature other artistes including Josey Wales and Determine. "The album is mixed and everything, we just have to settle on a date for the album to drop," he said. "Before we release the album we have to have a song that creates a buzz."
more original songs
They may have already found that song in the form of Ungrateful, a single about "People who you do things for and they're ungrateful and how we live with each other." The video has been on YouTube for a while now and, according to the entertainer, has been showing on Hype TV and RETV. Malvo says the album contains another standout in Thank God I've Found You, a lovers' rock that he feels is destined to do well.
Overall, the album will have more original songs that he wrote. This, he says, is in stark contrast to his heyday when "Producers wanted you to sing over songs" as opposed to performing originals. Those songs will be about love, current affairs, and the culture of the people and of the country, he revealed.
Malvo's confidence about Stronger is buoyed by a successful tour of several cities in the United States late last year. From November to December, he toured with Flourgon but picked up other veteran acts like General Trees and Yami Bolo along the way. There were stops in Washington, Atlanta, New York, Connecticut, Boston, and New Jersey Malvo said, and things went really well. "It was a good vibe," he said. "It was mainly clubs, indoor venues holding about a thousand people, a mix of Caribbean and American people."
Starting in February, Malvo sees other dates in Boston and across the Caribbean as the year unfolds. And there are even bigger things in store as he plans to release a compilation album that he hopes will have contributions from Lutan Fyah, Bugle and Sizzla among others.
